About the CRAFT-STEM Program Internships
CRAFT-STEM is an acronym for Columbus Region Academy of Future Teachers of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). It is part of a Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship grant awarded to Columbus State University by the National Science Foundation through grant number 1136356. The purpose of the program is to recruit, prepare and graduate more secondary teachers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields. The program also seeks to increase participation by under-represented groups and provide highly qualified teachers in high-need school districts.
CRAFT-STEM recruiting components include internships for CSU freshmen and sophomores and substantial scholarships for juniors and seniors (and, in some cases, post-baccalaureate students) pursuing secondary certification in STEM fields at CSU. Our hope is that students who participate in CRAFT-STEM internships will become enthusiastic about STEM and STEM teaching as a result of their experience.
